This right here is a great external hard drive deal. One of the best. So if you’ve been thinking of expanding your library storage space for your PS4, Xbox One or PC, then now is an ideal opportunity. Right now, the WD_Black Game Drive 5TB monster is just £99.99 at Amazon UK. This is an incredible price in its own right but it is also its lowest ever price. It’s also cheaper than the 4TB size. Madness.
You can get the same drive for a discount in the States too, with Amazon US offering it for $114.99. It’s not its lowest ever price at that amount but it’s still a great deal saving you $35 off its usual price. Moreover, getting 5TB of portable, reliable storage for 115 bucks is still great value.
If you like to keep a lot of games live and accessible at all times, then an external HDD is the way to go. Clocking it at that massive 5TB capacity, this is a mighty bit of extra storage that’ll be reliable, speedy, and exceptionally useful. Plus more generally, let’s face it, in our digital age, extra storage room for anything is always going to be useful.
If you really want to keep the price tag down as low as it can be for a 5TB model, then there’s also a WD Elements external drive going for $98.10 – a saving of 25% which is another great option. Though you won’t get the premium quality of the ‘Black’ hard drives above if that bothers you.
Treat yourself to a cheap Xbox Game Pass deal too and you’re laughing. You might get away with never having to delete a game again with this much storage available.
The 5TB version of the hard drive at this price offers incredible bang for buck value – particularly in the UK. It’s smaller than you think too – the size of a smartphone – and with its pacey speeds and epic reliability, it’ll easily outlast the remainder of this console generation. We might be looking more towards SSDs when the PS5 and Xbox Series X come around though. If you would like a little taste of next-gen loading times on your PS4, check out our guide to the best PS4 SSDs.
